Summer Camps Programs and Assistance

Our Camp Mission: We believe summer camps for children and teens living with bleeding disorders are very important. Summer camps help develop self-independence skills and allow for the opportunity to build life-long friendships with individuals who understand what it is like to live with bleeding disorders. We will provide summer camp support to families who have children attending summer camps upon request. The Chapter will provide travel grants or other needed items to help off set the cost of sending a child to camp. We partner each year with Camp Burnt Gin and the Hemophilia Treatment Center staff, and Camp Courage from the BILO Children’s Cancer Center in Greenville to provide mentoring support for campers. We assist with encouraging the need to learn self-infusion and we share encouraging stories and experiences. We provide each camper with a commemorated Chapter Day T-Shirt and Swag while providing the entire camp, counselors, and staff with our famous “Ice Cream Sundaes Social”.

Camp Burnt Gin is a summer camp in Wedgefield, South Carolina, for children who have physical disabilities and chronic illnesses. From early June until mid August, Camp Burnt Gin operates four six day sessions for 7 through 15 year old children, two six day session for teenagers, ages 16-20 and a four day session for young adults, ages 21-25.
